Places are filling up fast for this year’s Association of Dogs and Cats Homes (ADCH) conference, which will take place at the Hotel de France, St Helier, Jersey on April 21-22.

More than 200 delegates and experts from across the animal welfare industry are expected to attend the event, with speakers including:

  • Caroline Kisko (The Kennel Club),
  • Major Chris Ham (Royal Army Veterinary Corps), and
  • Pet behaviour counsellor Vicky Halls.

ADCH chairman   Clarissa BaldwinThe conference – which will be opened and chaired by Clarissa Baldwin and Nick Blampied, president of the Jersey SPCA – will include talks on a variety of topical issues including how to control infections in the kennel and cattery environment, and the difficulty of maintaining your income during economic uncertainty.

Major Chris Ham will talk on the use of rescue dogs in the armed forces, focussing on how – despite many advances in technology – the military working dog is still at the forefront of modern military operations. He will discuss the canine recruitment processes and the reward-based training methods used to shape a dog’s natural behaviour to suit the intended role of the military working dog.

ADCH chairman Clarissa Baldwin said: “The ADCH annual conference is an excellent opportunity for animal industry experts and interested parties to hear from and confer with top UK experts. It also enables delegates to meet other personnel from all sectors of the animal rescue industry including veterinary services, environmental health and local authorities. As always, we look forward to seeing many familiar faces at the event and hope to welcome many new ones too.”

Tickets for the two-day event are priced at £50 per delegate, which includes one night’s hotel accommodation. Register for the event at www.adch.org.uk.
